An alms giving ceremony held at the Siri Sadaham Ashram recently received various responses on social media. This alms giving ceremony was held on the birthday of Chandimal Jayasinghe’s mother.
Chandimal Jayasinghe’s friends who are models and beauticians participated in this event. Social media also began to question the clothing styles of the young women who attended the event.
Finally, the almsgiving ended as usual, criticizing Ven. Samanthabhadra Thero a thousand times. The response of Ven. Samanthabhadra Thera to those responses were, “Usually Siri Sadaham Ashram has a dress code. It is only for Poya day and Vipassana day. That is the official dress code of the monastery. You can wear any clothes when you bring alms on the other days.”
